Hamilton Township Democratic Mayoral candidate Barbara Plumeri held a kick-off small donor meet and greet yesterday at Killarney's Publick House in Hamilton.
Among the some 200 people who attended the $25 per head event were County Executive Brian Hughes, Senators Shirley Turner and Linda Greenstein, Assemblymen Wayne DeAngelo and Dan Benson and several Mercer County Freeholders.
